I installed a Canon LBP2900 on a Linux machine.
My purpose was to connect it as a network printer...because that PC is always on.
I did the following...
Driver instalation on the Linux machine:
I followed the manufacturer's recomandations for the driver's instalation.
I downloaded the driver and common library.
After istalling gtk+ with yum install gtk+ I used:
rpm -ivh cndrvcups-common-1.30-1.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh cndrvcups-capt-1.30-1.i386.rpm
registered the printer:
/usr/sbin/lpadmin -p LBP2900 -m CNCUPSLBP2900CAPTK.ppd -v ccp:/var/ccpd/fifo0 -E
registered the printer in the ccpd daemon file for USB connection:
/usr/sbin/ccpdadmin -p LBP2900 -o /dev/usb/lp0
started ccpd daemon:
After that I did a reboot and connected the printer, the printer was found and fedora asked me if I want to contnue installing the USB device...I said yes.
/etc/init.d/ccpd start again...because I did not include this at Linux startup yet.
The printer appeared in the Network neighbourhood...when trying to install it under win2k I got an error about it being the vrong driver version so I installed the 2k drivers from the printer's CD.
Now it won't print
1.Did I do something wrong?
2.How can I print from the command-line in Linux...I wanna check if the driver installed properly in the first place.
3.Is the instalation complete? I'm a newbye and I used to hear that network printing support required samba (I have it already on the Linux box).
